    Tried Ver 19.04 HATED IT

    I have been running Ver 19.04 and it's like Back to the Past.
    The lay out is like Ver 16 and all the things I didn't like about 16 are back.
    The activities menu that forces you to type in a search box
    I can't put the home folder in the sidebar so I gotta minimize everything open to get at it.
    The list of things they did wrong just goes on


    To my mind the only things they did better with 19 is the logon screen you can just start typing the password from the blank screen. And Finally some one thought to put the settings for the Clock to go from 24 hour to 12 hour under the Settings menu where it makes sense.

    But I ain't seen nuthin' 'nuff mo bettuh to keep me there, so I am going to nuke the Ver 19 and go back to 18.04.

    You realize that 19.04 is an OS, not the GUI? There are 20 different GUIs you can run. Takes just a few minutes to switch between them.

    If you don't like Gnome3, then don't use Gnome3. No need to reinstall the entire OS over that.

    I never install the latest version without first checking it out in a VM.

    19.04 is nothing like 16.04. Unity is gone. I used to love it, but now that I got used to Gnome3, I can't stand Unity anymore. It was good while it lasted.

    If you click on the grid in the bottom left, same as 18.04, then you get your screen full of applications.

    By default, the Home folder is already on the side bar.

    No, I hadn't a clue.
    Gotta look into that.

    Unix isn't the same as Windows on many, many, levels. There is a common misconception that the Windows way applies to non-Windows OSes.

    Actually, in the 1990s, Windows had lots of different GUIs too - called "Shells".
